This was stop #6 on a Florida vacation for my wife and me. The pub is located along a busy commercial street near strip malls but in a building that is shared with a restaurant. A small bar plus a number of tables fill the place, and the 40 bbl brewing equipment is in a room behind the bar. A nice-looking covered patio is located at the entrance to the pub.

We sat at the bar and ordered a flight of 8 of the 15 beers that were available. Most of the beer list consisted of specialty beers, but there were 3-4 beers that are some of Sea Dog's normal bottle offerings. All of the beers are brewed to proper style characteristics, but 4 were just average with nothing extra to make them notable The others were much more enjoyable, and the Pecan Pie Nut Brown was exceptional.

There is no food available here, although the adjacent restaurant can be accessed through a short hallway. No snacks are available in the pub, but I did not ask if food could be ordered from the restaurant. This is a nice place to visit to drink some good beers, but if you want something above average to drink you need to do your homework (or ask for tastes) to decide which beers are to your liking. I could easily sit in the beer garden and work my way thru the list to decide which ones are potential candidates for a second glass.

All in all i wasn't impressed with this location. Ive never had Sea Dog before, primarily because in store its always their flavored beer. I tried their sample platter of crafts and was deeply unsatisfied. Only one beer grabbed my taste buds. The service was lousy and it wasn't even packed. Food came out burnt and was un-appetizing. haven't been back since. Not a very good Brew house and the construction in front makes it a bear to get to.

Sea Dog has an outstanding selection of beers. They offer more than 12 of their own beers on tap and have an extensive bottle list. The staff could be better trained though. It took several attempts to flag down a bartender before I got my first beer. I ended up getting an 8-beer flight. Especially love the brown ale, blueberry wheat ale, and the hazelnut porter. Food was decent, but a tad overpriced. Overall, had a good time, but there are some things the brewery could definitely improve on.
